Hey there Lea,
Stopping cutting altogether is not an easy task, is it?
Do you find it hard because you keep getting urges to do it, even when you might have no reason in which you needed to cut, like it probably was in the beginning? What alternatives to SH have you tried? I think even by saying that you need to stop cutting implies that you do want it - it's just that the urge to cut can be very overwhelming.

If you start just one day without it, that day will eventually lead into two, two into seven, seven into fourteen and so on.

You can do this

hey lea.

i know that you're going through a tough phase right now.. but just remember, it's all going to get better. just remember that you've all of us together with you in order to get through this.

you could try doing something more positive in order to flow all your negative feelings and change it into positive happy feelings. it could be anything from a hangout session to a good book to read. you should try getting a book called "Marley and me".. its really touching and probably well worth a read.

we're here in case you need any support


Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Aww Lea *hugs*
You know, right now you might feel as though you want the blood to just pour out of you, you want to give up and you probably don't care. But listen! Whatever you are going through, all your worries, won't last forever! Teenage years are hard, I understand. Cutting is a horrible horrible addiction, but you DO have the power to stop cutting whenever you want. You need to realize that. You have to power to stop. You CAN control your behavior. There are so many other ways to deal with your pain, and hurt. Try alternatives, try opening up to someone. Things will get better! Allow yourself to be happy, dear. You never know what the future holds, so why not stick around to find out all the wonders and opportunities it might bring!
Please, feel free to talk to em anytime, I'd be happy to listen =]
Be safe!
-Amy

At some user's request I've marked this triggering. =)

Whatever you do, don't give up. <3 You're worth it, and shouldn't give up. You need to just take control of your self harm. Stop it, it doesn't need to be there. You don't need it. I promise you you don't need it. You want it, not need.

Just keep breathing, get your attention elsewhere by drawing, writing, reading, going a walk or anything like that, that is safe.

Hang in there. You'll be okay.
Maria.

as maria said... once you break through the mental barrier, you'll be able to overcome self harm.

and frmo there on, life will get a whole load better thats a sure thing.

but the thing is..it'll all really be over only when you start looking at things from another point of view

i believe that with some help, everything can change and definitely , you'll be able to change everything around and experience living the way its meant to be....happily.

Just quitting IS NOT EASY. Thats prolly one of the hardest things you will ever do. Trust me. That's what I did and everyday I almost relapse. And I actually did one time. Try taking it slow and ease off it. Do it less and less everyday until your going days between cutting. soon those days will turn into weeks and those weeks will turn into months and those months will turn into years. I don't know if the urge to cut will ever go away but I kno that it is possible to stop. I hope you can stop. pm me if u ever need someone to listen.
